Just An Idea
You know what I find so fascinating about Little Peanut, she is so darn flexible. I realize that it’s because of the low tone, but still very cool. I wish that I could be that flexible. We were over our friend’s house for a Labor Day BBQ and I was playing with Peanut and I was rubbing her feet on her head, yes it’s a strange thing to do, but she likes it and I’m a guy, we do strange things. Anyway, our friends thought it was the coolest thing, so I agreed and said “Yes, my daughter is cool” and offered to show them another trick lol. I didn’t, just kidding there. But it did get me thinking. We as parents of kids with DS get the usual stares from people when we are out and about. One time, I think Peanut was 2-3 months old and we were at Hershey Park, I told a lady to take a picture because it lasts longer. I think I embarrassed the living daylights out of her because she couldn’t get away from us fast enough. Anyway, I’m passed all that stuff and could care less about what other people think. Yes, I do have the occasional relapse. I thought the next time I’m in one of my moods and I have Peanut with me and catch someone staring at my daughter, I’ll turn around and clap her feet behind her head and then announce “Thank you all for coming, and now for her next trick”, by that time I’m sure that the person will be anywhere but near us.
